Make sure its US or European version!!

Make sure all of your TT1 and TT5 are either EUROPEAN (CE on back label) or FCC (for US models). You can't mix them - they use different frequency and not work together. I learned this the hard expensive and frustrating way.

I use this with my Nikon D7000 and SB900 and SB910 flashes. I am somewhat disappointed with the need to use a computer to change the channels as this creates a need to bring a computer with you on all assignments just in case you need to change the channel.

Disappointed

By

from Madison, WI  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought a used FlexTT5 from this site and I am extremely disappointed to find out it is a European Transceiver. I have a U.S. MiniTT1 Transmitter and they are on different frequencies. Thing is nowhere on the product page did it state that the FlexTT5 transceiver was a European model and used a different frequency, so now I'm out $150, stuck with a useless transceiver and I'm going to have to go shell out another $230 for the right model. At least I don't have an immediate need for it...

Amazing Technology

By

I use Canon Speedlites for my location shoots. This and the MiniTT1 gives me more flexibility in arranging lighting and not dependent on a cable to take advantage of ENGLAND mode.

FlexTT5 For the Win!

By

from New York  -  Pro Photographer

I love that these units take double A batteries and not a special battery like the MiniTT1. The unit is reliable and easy to use. Makes my life easier being able to trigger without needing line of sight and opens the door to many more creative opportunities.

I would give 0 stars if possible

By

from Louisville Kentucky  -  Pro Photographer

Purchased this product along with an upgrade to my Nissin Di866, the Di866 Mark II. Imagine my surprise when I found out the Nissin flashes and the TT5 were not playing together. No amount of effort produced a workable arrangement. I finally noticed on the PW website a tiny mention that the TT5 does not work in TTL mode with Nissin flashes...that I would have to accept a neutered product application. None of this is mentioned in the information for the flash...you will have to read it on the PW site. I contacted Adorama here and returned both TT5's. If I want to purchase a neutered product I will expect a reduced price. Buyer beware and immediately check your product to make sure it will do what you are wanting so that you can return it if there is a problem

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ALLEN H  Reputation
Max C  Is TT5 and/or TT1 will be compatible with 6D anytime soon? I would like to use it on a alienbees 1600 strobe for outdoor shoot.
NELSON U  subscribe to the pocketwizard website's newsletter, or write to the their support department.
Shopper  If i put a Nikon flash (ie.SB-900) on the MiniTT1,can i still fire my remote flash (manual settings) on TT5s and still have my on-camera flash firing on TTL?
Peter C  Yes, you should be able to. Just make sure your remote flash units are set to "Manual" mode. In that case, the TT5 just acts as a dumb trigger, with no TTL input.
